something about john mccain. i don't know if you're aware of this, but he along with several other republicans did not attend the hearing today, but he's blood pressure very, veocal on issue. a cnn producer skz him, by the way, instead of coming, he was holding a press conference calling for a separate investigation into benghazi, so a cnn producer asked why he didn't go to the hearing and here's what he said -- >> not going to comment on how i spend my time. >> is john mccain being too political? >> well, look, first of all, that was yesterday. and yesterday was a closed session of the intelligence committee. today was the hearing and today was where the director of national intelligence, the head of the counterintelligence agency, the cia, fbi, state department, they were there and john mccain was at that hearing. >> so you feel any criticism of him is unfair. people have been picking on him for this, sounds like you're depending him. >> john said he had a scheduling conflict and i'll take him at his word. >> you were a former ambassador yourself. rand paul was on the show last n

for secretary of state. senators including john mccain and lindsey graham say what led americans surrounded the attacks in benghazi. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi? and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation, it's outrageous. >> "outfront" tonight, rand paul of kentucky. he serves on the homeland security committee and senator paul, senator lindsey graham responded, i wanted to quote it. mr. president, don't think for one minute i don't hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during and after the attack. i have no intention of promoting anyone who was up to their eyeballs in the benghazi debacle. >> i think there's two questions. everybody's been emphasizing whether or not it was right for her to go out and say this was caused by some crazy movie made by some low budget
what john mccain said right before his meeting today. here it is. >> my focus is on four dead americans, all of them brave, unnecessarily, and what is clearly of all the earmarks of a cover-up. >> was there a cover-up? >> well, erin, there is still an awful lot of questions to be answered. of course, there's an investigation being undertaken now by admiral mullen, former head of our joint chiefs of staff, as well. and when that process plays out, we're going to have a lot more answers to questions about what happened. the key thing right now, though, i think -- and i think senator mccain would agree with this, we need to make sure we do everything possible to bring to justice those who committed these acts that led to the death of four americans. that's the most important thing right now, in addition to making sure that every embassy, every consulate, every -- every installation where we have our diplomats who are very brave americans on the ground doing important work that we do everything we can to secure them. but i think that we're going to have more answers when we go through the p
-- let me start with you because when john started out talking about the latino vote, these numbers are pretty shocking and overwhelming. bush in 2004, 44% of the vote. mccain. 31% and now, mitt romney at 27%. what happened to the enroads made by george w. bush? >> there's no coat tails. with hispanics and gop, they don't really exist. latinos vote for a candidate, not a party. for many, the republican brand is very tarnished. it's seen as she doesn't care for the latino community or those interests, which are all these very false stereotypes. over the last 40 years, republicans earned 30% of the hispanic vote. that's about the average. and we understood if we do not get up into the 37, 38, 39%, the republican party will fail to win national elections from probably 2012 on. >> that's a pretty incredible thing. >> you saw john king put up that map. i mean, there's a state that stands out there. that state was texas. are we now looking at a point where texas could be something you could make a play for as a democrat? >> i think texas is no doubt going to be a purple state. just a plac
